Call for Papers Issued for VOICE 2011 Forum on Semiconductor Testing Technologies

Fifth Annual VOICE Technical Conference to Feature Technical Tracks, Hands-On Workshops and Suppliers Expo

CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwire - September 16, 2010) -  An international call for papers has been issued for the 2011 edition of the VOICE Technical Program, a users group meeting and partners conference organized by premier semiconductor test company Verigy (NASDAQ: VRGY). Coming April 19-21, 2011, to the Chaminade Resort & Spa in Santa Cruz, Calif., the fifth annual VOICE conference will feature technical presentations, workshops and discussion groups -- covering topics such as the equipment advances, test techniques and methodologies, engineering effectiveness and cost-efficient solutions for production-volume testing -- and a suppliers expo where attendees can learn about the newest products and services from Verigy and its solution partners from around the world.

"In addition to the technical presentations, VOICE provides a collaborative forum for exchanging perspectives on the latest semiconductor testing techniques and best practices for Verigy V93000, V101 and V6000 platforms," said Rich Lathrop, senior staff applications engineer at Verigy and chairperson of the conference's steering committee. "Attendees have the opportunity to preview the latest high-yield test solutions for SOC, Flash, DRAM and high-speed memory ICs as well as full-wafer probe card solutions while interacting directly with test equipment R&D professionals."

The three-day conference offers a wide selection of educational sessions, ranging from product-focused tutorials and hands-on product showcases to discussions of emerging device technologies, global industry standards and future test requirements with peers and technical experts from integrated device manufacturers (IDMs), fabless semiconductor companies and outsource assembly and test (OSAT) houses.

This year's call for papers offers three ways for interested presenters to participate. Abstracts are now being accepted for 30-minute short-form presentations, 45-minute long-form presentations or participation in expert group discussions for each of the following technology tracks:
